Cresa Atlanta is an international corporate real estate advisory firm that exclusively represents tenants – office and industrial space users. As professional real estate advisors, we are passionate about understanding the needs of our clients and strive to deliver exceptional service for the long term. We collaborate with clients to provide service-oriented rather than transaction-oriented counsel. By choosing to represent the interests of Tenants alone, Cresa Atlanta avoids conflicts of interest.
For clients that choose to relocate, our work is not complete until they experience a seamless transition to new space. Cresa Atlanta offers project management and relocation planning services, ensuring that construction projects are delivered on time and under budget. With more than 100 years of combined experience, in addition to office, industrial and retail space construction, our Project Managers have experience with build-to-suit, call centers, hotels, restaurants, educational, and medical facilities.
Our mission is to provide customized solutions exclusively for corporate space users by offering fully integrated services that align their real estate needs with their business plans, delivering maximum cost savings and exceeding expectations.
Our vision is to be the exception in the commercial real estate industry: A company that is service-oriented rather than transaction-oriented, with advisors who are client focused not deal focused.
We are guided by the concept, “Do the Right Thing,” both internally and externally. We will always do what is right for the client’s best interest and put that interest before our own. We treat our clients and employees with respect, dignity and fairness in all matters.
While absorption in the 4th Quarter was the highest for 2016, total absorption for the year was down drastically from the more than 5.5 million SF reported in 2015. Yet, rental rates continued to climb, although moderating toward the end of the year.
Continuing its drop in Metro-Atlanta’s industrial market, net absorption posted more than a 50% change from Q3 to Q4 posting a positive 1,440,306 square feet. Overall net absorption for the year was 13,686,346 square feet.
At Cresa Atlanta, we believe in “paying it forward.” During the year, we fund and provide volunteers for four different community service projects.
In January and again in December, we participated in the Feed the Homeless initiative, founded by real estate veteran, Hugh Pafford. Each Saturday, an Atlanta real estate company funds the food that is served to the homeless in downtown Atlanta. The food is cooked by volunteers using a mobile feeding unit and served “on the street.”
Every March, Cresa Atlanta buys a large quantity of canned goods and delivers it to the Sandy Springs Community Assistance Center. In addition to stocking the shelves, we provide volunteers to help change out the thrift store clothing from winter to summer clothes.
Annually, Cresa Atlanta also participates in the CoreNet Community Reinvestment Challenge. For the past two years, we have helped fund improvements to Nicholas House, the only homeless shelter in Georgia that houses entire families. This year, our Cresa Atlanta volunteers helped landscape the grounds of the shelter near Grant Park, repaired a porch roof and painted parts of the interior of the house.
After celebrating our own Thanksgiving lunch, we got to work “stuffing” 250 toiletries bags for homeless men. The bags were then donated to Must Ministries, who will distribute them to homeless men attending the Must Ministries Thanksgiving lunch. Cresa Atlanta also made a cash contribution to the operating account to help finance the many outreach programs of this organization.
Cresa Atlanta is grateful for its many blessings, including our wonderful clients, employees, advisors, vendors, and real estate associates. We are pleased to be in a position to “pay it forward” through our community service efforts.

A warehouse isn’t just real estate. It’s a crucial link in your supply chain. As a pivot point for moving your goods around the country, its location cannot be haphazard.
And yet, warehouse space that truly fits your needs may be in short supply — at any given time, your options will most likely be limited.
Our consultants are known for taking a more holistic view of your entire supply chain. We know how the right real estate can add vital flexibility to your logistical needs, so we look beyond just rent to the equally important costs associated with transportation, fuel, and labor.
In short, we combine our considerable real estate savvy with an unmatched understanding of the broader issues of supply chain management.
